Imagine there has been a country-wide power failure, there is no electricity for days, the supermarkets are running out, there is no transport and no Internet. How prepared would you be for such an event? The Austrian newspaper Der Standard asked its readers recently and the results were... interesting. Read the article and the discussion that follows it, and pick up some useful German expressions along the way ‒ as well as some tips on what to stock up on in case of an emergency.
